Unbelievable Transformation: This 1968 Ford Mustang is Powered by a Ferrari Twin-Turbo V8 Engine! You Won’t Believe Your Eyes

American Legends has unveiled a unique 1968 Ford Mustang at the SEMA show, featuring a surprising powertrain combination. This Mustang stands out from the crowd by housing a 4.3-liter V8 engine sourced from a Ferrari F430. However, the modifications don’t stop there. American Legends has added twin turbochargers from Nelson Racing and an intake manifold from a Ferrari California, further enhancing the performance of the Mustang.

While the car has not yet been dyno-tested, American Legends aims to achieve a targeted output of 700 horsepower (522 kW / 709 PS) at the flywheel. Although this figure may seem modest compared to the 1,000 horsepower Hellephant unveiled by Mopar at the show, it still represents a substantial power increase for a classic 1968 Ford Mustang.

The upgrades to this Mustang extend beyond the engine. It features a RideTech suspension, Avant Garde wheels wrapped in Toyo tires, and Wilwood brakes for enhanced performance. The exterior of the car showcases a chopped roof, side-exiting exhaust, and distinctive 3D taillights.

Inside the cabin, the Mustang has a unique and sporty feel. Carbon fiber construction is used for the floor and tunnel, while low-back bucket seats with four-point harnesses provide comfort and safety. The custom dashboard, three-spoke steering wheel, and Corruptt-branded instrument cluster, which has a top speed reading of 160 mph (257 km/h), complete the interior upgrades.

This 1968 Ford Mustang with a Ferrari twin-turbo V8 engine represents a fusion of American and Italian automotive prowess, creating a truly exceptional and powerful vehicle that combines classic style with modern performance.
